A BATWOMAN Series is Being Developed By The CW
A couple months ago Arrow star Stephen Amell announced that DC's Batwoman would be making her big live-action debut in an upcoming Arrowverse crossover. A lot of fans speculated that this could lead to a solo series of her own, and now that has been confirmed to be the case.
According to Variety, The CW is developing a Batwoman series that will debut in 2019 if it gets picked up. I'm sure it will because everyone is looking to fill up their slates with female superheroes these days. Here's the synopsis that was released:
In the series, Kate Kane, armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.
The series is being written and produced by Caroline Dries who has worked on series such as The Vampire Diaries and the network’s new iteration of Melrose Place. If it makes you feel any better, she was also a writer on Smallville.
Of course, Greg Berlanti will also be an executive producer on the series alongside Geoff Johns. They are attached to all of the DC series. This would make Berlanti’s seventh show on The CW and 15th on the air overall, which cements his record for most live-action shows on the air at one time.
What do you think of Batwoman getting her own CW series?
